Going the distance

Life is like a long distance run. Most of the time you're looking forward, but occasionally you look back at what you've covered… You know there will be obstacles throughout the journey - but deep down, you know you can handle anything that comes your way. Most importantly... you keep putting one foot in front of the other and let 'NOTHING' stand in your way!!!

I've had allot of discussion lately about using music to enhance your run. I originally used it daily, now only when I'm alone or in the mood to get ahead of the pack. I can no longer wear the ear buds in ear due to the hearing aids. I have developed a way to tuck the buds in the rim of my hat, just above the hearing aids. I am still able to have conversation and hear my surroundings.

I have had request for what I listen to. Here is my play list I made for my 40 last year. I put allot of thought into this creating it to give me highs and lows. The end gets a little off track and I rarely even play through the end songs. I have about 10 other list for different occasions. Many of these songs make it in to shorter list.

I hope you enjoy and maybe find something new.
